The kind of attitude that results from this practice, for example to see all things as Love, might not be effective for war and it might not beget science, but to help others its a fine cultivation.
One can, of course, temporarily alleviate one’s suffering by reinterpreting it as “good”. But, then we have the same problem all over again—passing judgment on what is. Only, now, an optimistic outlook is forced on the interpretation process.
But, if people were to follow the actual idea expressed by those masters (that thing-events are empty of value; and that valuation is a function of interpretation; and that whichever way one interprets them, they remain empty), they would arrive at equanimity/tranquility—which, from my perspective, is a much more agreeable condition.
